Oklahoma Senate District 6

District 6 - Representing Atoka, Bryan, Coal, Johnston and Marshall Counties

“I believe in the future of Oklahoma with a faith born not of words, but of deeds.”

The Platform


Arnold was raised in a Christian household. The oldest of 5 siblings, Bourne exhibits the same faith based values in his work and personal life, as those in which he was raised. He, along with his wife Lori, raised his 2 boys with the same values and beliefs that his parents instilled in him. He is an active member of the Parkside Baptist Church where he sings in the choir. 


Arnold lives just outside of Durant on the family farm that has been in his family for almost 100 years! He runs a cow/calf operation and is a commercial pecan grower. He is a member of the Bryan County Farm Bureau and American Farmers and Ranchers. 


Arnold is a lifetime NRA member and lifetime Oklahoma Rifle Association member. He also teaches concealed/open carry classes and has taught hunter's safety courses for approximately 20 years.  He not only believes wholeheartedly in the Second Amendment, but believes that gun owners should be responsible in their ownership duties and tries his best to make his classes an education in gun safety as well. 

Retired Ag Teacher

Bourne was an agricultural education teacher for 14 years in Harrah, Oklahoma and 20 years in Durant, Oklahoma. He was named Teacher of the Year for Durant Public Schools. Even with the lucrative Texas education pay system, Arnold held true to his Oklahoma roots and stayed in his home state and home town. He believes that keeping jobs in Oklahoma and keeping valuable educators in Oklahoma can only better the local economies and improve and shape the young minds of our youth. 


"I have learned all too well that life is precious."  stated Bourne.  "I do not believe in using abortion as a form of birth control.  Sometimes, it is medically necessary, and I pity those that are placed in that position.  Life is so beautifully short on this earth and I believe everyone deserves a fighting chance."

Our Next Senator!

Arnold states that he has had enough of political games and said there is a complete lack of leadership and common sense at the Capitol. Bourne said, “Both sides are to blame for this mess we are in, but they’d rather stand around pointing fingers instead of working side-by-side to clean up their mess. I think the people of Oklahoma have had enough of their nonsense and will hold those that obstruct progress and funding for schools accountable." Bourne was quoted, “I spent 34 years teaching Ag and was fortunate enough to spend my last 20 years teaching at Durant High School and tried to instill in my students to live by the FFA motto. The last words of the FFA Creed are “Living to Serve”, and I would be honored to have the confidence of the people to serve them in the Senate."
